Yesterday I wrote about a brutal and visceral suspenseful film in Green Room. Today I’m going to write about another seriously suspenseful film, only this one is more so emotionally and intellectually. The Invitation is a fantastic little mystery that builds ever so slowly and ever so creepily. This is a movie that everyone can … Continue reading 10/21/16 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #21 – The Invitation.
Here’s another one of my true pleasures I saw last year. A film that kind of snuck out of nowhere and punched me in the gut. The Gift is one of those really smart films that takes you on a twisted journey right alongside the characters, and like them, you really don’t have any clue … Continue reading 10/17/16 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #17 – The Gift (2015).
I’ve been focusing on a lot of current movies lately so I figured I’d go back to one of the true classics. And I mean classic. This House on Haunted Hill is one of my absolute favorite Vincent Price movies (to be fair, I have a lot of them).

Okay, watch out, it’s Jeff’s guilty pleasure time. Look, this is my list so I get to put what I want on it. I know that at its core Dead Silence is a pretty ridiculous movie. I know it’s been critically panned. I know there are logic gaps a mile wide. But guess what? I … Continue reading 10/9/14 – 2014 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #9 – Dead Silence.

It’s always a funny situation because once a film becomes a huge hit, its success usually overlooks the content itself. Well, with Insidious, I want to take it back to why this film became such a huge hit in the … Continue reading 10/23/13 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #23 – Insidious
